The Perfect Wedding Cakes for your Barn Wedding

The Perfect Wedding Cakes for your Barn Wedding – Sandhole Oak Barn

There’s nothing we love more than a fabulous wedding cake that not only tastes delicious but also looks the part. We hope these designs will inspire your barn wedding.

Naturally Naked

Naked and semi-naked cakes remain popular and are a perfect choice for a barn wedding venue. A delicate coating of buttercream or ganache adds a hint of colour, while the addition of flowers and fruit is effortlessly rustic.
Simple and pretty, with delicate colours and white icing, this cake would work well at any time of year.

This naked cake is fantastic in so many ways, with its different flavours, simplicity and fresh flower decoration. Choosing a tall cake is a good idea in a barn with high ceilings.

All About Flowers

Flowers are the most popular type of cake decoration and it’s always lovely to choose blooms that co-ordinate with the other floral arrangements on your wedding day. Fresh flowers are dreamy and sugar flowers can be absolutely exquisite. Do consider sugar flowers if you’re marrying on a particularly hot day or you want to include flowers on your cake that are out of season.

Pastel flowers and textured icing lend a vintage style.

For something completely different, speak to your cake designer about using edible flowers. This has a wonderful country style.

Individual tiers adorned with fresh flowers can make a real impact. We love this ‘just picked’ look – perfect for a barn wedding.

By their very nature, sugar flowers are generally more ‘perfect’ than their fresh alternatives. Choose colour and abundance for a rustic wedding.

Artistic Options

Hand-painted cakes are, quite literally, works of art. Of course they are also entirely unique and designed to suit the style of your day and your venue.

These pretty wild flowers look almost real.

Elegant and pretty, there’s nothing quite as delicate as simple green and white.

Alternative and Quirky

Of course, you might decide to choose something completely different for your wedding cake – whether it’s a fun alternative to cake, a tower of miniature desserts or a chocolate extravaganza. Always consider your season if you’re choosing chocolate which can melt quickly on a hot day!

Informal and delicious, how about a doughnut cake or a doughnut wall?

A cake made from wheels of cheese and presented on wood slices is great for a barn wedding.
